1940s-era Lafayette Hotel undergoing $25M overhaul before reopening in 2023

Sep 20, 2022

1940s-era Lafayette Hotel undergoing $25M overhaul before reopening in 2023 The Lafayette hotel on El Cajon Boulevard will soon be undergoing a $25 million renovation that will include a meticulous makeover of spaces like the front lobby, including elegant draperies and hand-painted frescoes, as seen in this rendering. (Courtesy of CH Projects) CH Projects, known for its cutting-edge dining ventures and speakeasies, will give the North Park landmark a top-to-bottom makeover that includes seven new restaurants and bars — and a game room — in its first foray into the hotel business. Print More than a half-century since it first opened in North Park and long after Hollywood’s elite stopped staying overnight there, the Lafayette Hotel and Swim Club is about to undergo a game-changing makeover that its new owners hope will return the declining property to its glory days. CH Projects, known for its robust portfolio of drinking and dining venues, is sparing no expense — its original $12 million budget has ballooned to $26 million — as it prepares to shutter the 141-room hotel next month and begin work on the months-long restoration that will include seven new food and beverage outlets, including a vintage bowling alley and game room. This story is for subscribers We offer subscribers exclusive access to our best journalism. Thank you for your support. Advertisement No part of the hotel’s interior will be untouched, from the guest rooms to the lobby, which will be entirely redone, imbued with an old-world feel down to billowing draperies, fringed sofas, frescoes in the archways, checkered marble flooring, and light fixtures sourced from Europe and antique dealers. The revamped hotel is expected to reopen by May of next year. Marking the hospitality company’s first foray into the world of hotels, the Lafayette project is meant to pay homage not only to its own historic roots but also the grand European hotels of yesteryear, says CH co-founder Arsalun Tafazoli, whose company bought the hotel last year for $25.8 million. He drops names like the Ritz in Paris and Claridge’s in London as examples of the sort of enduring, iconic hotels that he sees as a model for resuscitating the Lafayette. “So what I love about this project is it was built 80 years ago and it’s going to be there after I’m dead,” Tafazoli said. “I think we are just temporary stewards, and I want to make sure our stamp holds up after I am gone. “Unfortunately, it’s been through eight different iterations over the years, and there’s disrepair and neglect. No one has really invested in that place.” Originally called Imig Manor Hotel when it opened in 1946, its first guest was comedian Bob Hope, who would be followed later by such 40s-era movie stars as Ava Gardner, Betty Grable and Lana Turner. And its Mississippi Room once played host to big bands led by notables like Harry James. In 1955, the Colonial-style property was purchased by hotelier Conrad Hilton, who changed the hotel’s name to the Lafayette. Renovations, though, have been sporadic. The last major upgrade of the 2.5-acre property was about a decade ago when then owner Jay Wentz reinvested $6 million in the property, which included renovated guest rooms, re-roofing and an upgrade of the pool, originally designed by Johnny Weissmuller of “Tarzan” fame. Over the years, though, there was much neglect, says Tafazoli, whose workers discovered what appeared to be years of water leaks, which will require replacing all of the plumbing. And some parts of the building hadn’t been occupied for years, Tafazoli discovered. One small room, an engineer’s office, felt like a time capsule when he entered and found food there that hadn’t been touched for years. “We’ve had to gut a lot of the property and rebuild it from the ground up. A lot was not salvageable,” Tafazoli said. As is typical of many of CH Projects’ hospitality undertakings, there is slavish attention to design details, down to the pleating of the upholstered arm of a chair and the thickness of the fringe dangling off the floor, said Leigh Salem the Brooklyn-based Post Company, which is overseeing the redesign of the Lafayette. Some of the design will recall much earlier time periods, like art deco lighting from the 1920s. And a planned diner, with its red leather booths and polished metal trim on the curved bar, will be a throwback to the ‘50s, Salem said. “There’s a huge amount of time spent on millwork, like door casings, custom ceiling paneling. And there will be some spaces that are heavy in gilded palm leaves and sculptural details,” Salem said. “There’s also a lot of Murano glass lighting, typical of grand hotels that had these amazing light fixtures, so we are having them made for the space.” Visitors and guests can also expect a lot of animal prints throughout, he added. “It will be incredibly saturated in color. Each component is its own mini project.” Mama Intento will be a combination Oaxacan restaurant and agave bar. (Rendering courtesy of the Post Company) Given CH’s broad array of dining establishments, from Born & Raised in Little Italy to The Reading Club atop the InterContinental Hotel, it shouldn’t be a surprise that much of the work on the Lafayette remodel focuses on spots for eating and imbibing. While the hotel was known for years for the Red Fox Steakhouse and piano bar — now located across the street — the Lafayette will be catering to a wide variety of tastes. Among the new concepts are: Faux Pax: Not unlike its fine dining venue, Born & Raised, this new continental restaurant will offer tableside service, including prime rib cut at the table. Mama Intento: An Oaxacan-style restaurant that will include an agave bar and a wood-fired hearth oven for roasting meats. Salem said the design is meant to convey a dark and brooding feel, but it will be accented with stained glass. Gutter: Inspired by Henry Frick’s personal bowling alley at the base of the Frick Museum in New York, Gutter will be a combination cocktail bar, game room and vintage bowling alley. Beginners Diner: Designed with the help of a diner historian hired by CH, the 24-hour restaurant will be a recreation of a 1940s Worcester lunch car and will include such touches as wood-framed posts that will include coat hooks and have globe lighting atop each one. In conjunction with the reimagined lobby, there will be a lobby bar where, as Tafazoli says, “some of the greatest cocktails happened.” “We want to create an institutional lobby bar, which is your starting point for a complete evening and where you’ll be interacting with locals and hotel guests.”
